Airport Christchurch Luxury Motels & Apartments (T/a Airport Christchurch Motel Ltd.) are extremely well located being just 5 minutes from the airport and no matter where you plan to visit in Christchurch or travel to when you leave, you will find the location very convenient. The route into the central city is very direct and easy to follow (and we are very close to all the major highways). Our location on what is basically a quiet suburban street ensures your stay will be relaxing and that you will get a good night's sleep as we are not on any flight path. Roydvale Avenue is very busy during the day because we have a number of businesses near the motel but in the evening it becomes like a normal residential street.
If you are making your own way to us, we are very easy to find as we are just three minutes from State Highway 1 heading north or south, five minutes from State Highway 73 to the West Coast and the Inland Scenic Route and only 12 minutes from the central city. The route to Highway 75 (the road to Akaroa) is also very direct and easy to follow from the Motel.
